Dunn-Edwards Paint Manufacturing Plant

This LEED-Gold project added two separate mezzanines to an existing 300,000-sq-ft building, plus an addition for the bulk storage of raw materials for manufacturing. The project also included a retail area, corporate training and board rooms, offices and a lab. BIM was used to lay out more than 100 tanks—some of which are suspended from the mezzanines—and 2,500 automatic valves with connective piping that route materials all the way from new rail spur and truck off-loading stations to the fill lines where the finished product is dispersed into paint cans. Newly purchased equipment had to be coordinated with equipment relocated from existing facilities.
